The T.C. Steele Surprise

T.C. Steele painting at IPS School 84
One of the most famous Indiana painters was T.C. Steele.  You can visit the T.C. Steele Historic Site down near Nashville to tour his home and studio. 

Imagine my surprise as I was walking down the hallway of my daughter's elementary school `when what to my wondering eyes should appear` but an original T.C. Steele painting hanging casually on the wall!

I have no idea how the school came to own this painting, but how wonderful is it that the children there can experience viewing the texture of a real masterwork?
